Making learning accessible

Perlego was created by co-founders Gauthier and Matt, when they were students. They were able to pay a subscription for pretty much everything, except for their expensive textbooks, which they would use once or twice then never need again. 

They wanted to create a subscription service, for textbooks and non-fiction titles, that would give students an affordable way to learn. 

So here we are today. Our ambition is to become the world’s online learning library, a single place where learners can instantly access all of the world’s academic content for less than the price of a single book.




Our core values

Always be learning (and failing)
Be honest and transparent
Be passionate, positive and optimistic
Take ownership and embrace challenges
Help others succeed, be caring
Think big, build simple and enjoy the journey

We value diversity

Different perspectives, ideas, knowledge and culture brings great strength.

Why you should join

One of the best things about working at Perlego is that we all have an appreciation for what each other is doing - in fact, we’ve got an appreciation station to prove it. We’re a young, ambitious team, who put a lot of energy into everything we do, including celebrating the small wins along with the big ones. 

We have regular team events (karaoke, drinks, Friday food, and an annual getaway to name a few) and we make sure to have a monthly meeting - beers and snacks included - to give all areas of the team an update on what we’re all working on. We even have our very own office dog on standby for emergency shredding needs (and photo ops).
